Annual Giving Outlook- Good Prospects for a successful Annual Giv ing campaign look good as evidenced by the many gifts and pledges received by Trinity's Development Office through January 20 . The Alumni Fund has received $139,015 in gifts or pledges from 1,413 sources, or 46 % of its goal of $300,000 . Last year during the same period, $119,147 had been received. Forty-six per cent of the funds sought for the Parents Fund have also been pledged or received from 330 donors, who contributed $48,640 of the $105,000 needed.

Descartes Meetings Attract Scholars A very successful two-day colloquium on Rene Descartes, the French philosopher, was held on Saturday and Sunday, January 25 and 26 in Wean Lounge at the College . Topic for the event was "Cartesian Coordinates ." The colloquium was sponsored by the Philosophy Department, the lecture committee and the dean of faculty. Participants included faculty from Harvard, Princeton, Columbia, Brandeis, Northeastern and the University of Iceland. Saturday's program began at 10 a.m. with a presentation on "Validating Reason: A Locked-Room Mystery." At 2 p.m ., "Cartesian Dualism" was the topic for a second discussion. The evening program was on the topic "Dualism in Descartes: the Logical Ground ." Sunday's program began at 10 a.m. on the subject "Descartes' Denial of Mind-Body Identity. " "The Representational Character of Ideas and The Problem of the External World" followed at 1 p.m. "The Beast Machine" concluded the colloquium .
The College has launched a national fund raising campaign seeking $12 million for faculty and for academic program, for scholarships, for the library, and for improvement of the campus . Achievement of this objective, according to President Lockwood, "will sustain Trinity as a small college of the highest quality. Undeniably, our nation is in need of strong institutions like Trinity where students canÂˇ come to grips with important moral, ~ocial, and intellectual issues. Our goal is the continued development of this College as a place where sound scholarship is grounded in a concern for the ethical values of life." More than $4 million has already been raised toward the goal. At a campaign kickoff ceremony held Saturday, January 18 at the College, Robert M. Blum , a New York attorney and national campaign chairman, reported that $4,165,025 in advance gifts and pledges have been received. He said "These gifts, totaling just over a third of our goal, are certainly a great expression of confidence in Trinity, especially in light of our nation's unfavorable econom ic situation. " The College expects to raise $5 million endowment for faculty and for academic program; $2.5 million endowment for scholarships; $1 million endowment for campus improvement; $1 million endowment for the library, and $2.5 million for construction of the new library wing . The appeal is being made not only locally, but nationwide to alumni, parents, philanthropic foundations, business firms and other friends o f the College. In announcing the start of this campaign, Dr. Lockwood said "Trinity today enjoys an enviable reputation, not only for the quality of its academic program, but also for the responsible manner in which we have managed our limited financial resources. Our budgets have been balanced each year and we have increased the income yield from our existing endowment funds. We have done this at a time when many colleges and universities are facing deficit budgets. Yet we realize that if Trinity is to continue to remain competitive with the best educational institutions, and if Trinity is to continue to make a significant contribution to society through the quality of the education we provide, it is imperative that we now increase the endowment base supporting our academic program and facilities." "We are in a situation in which our faculty salaries are not fully competitive; in which our scholarship funds are not sufficient to permit us to help enough qualified students from the lower and middle economic levels; in which our library . is severely overcrowded, and in which rising costs of maintenance cut 'ever more deeply into our annual operating budget, " Dr. Lockwood said .

"This is why the greater portion of this campaign will go into our endowment. Endowment funds, which are held permanently and invested by the College, provide an annual income yield which supports the operating costs of current programs. Endowment incom e, tuition, and annual gifts are the three chief sources of revenue in Trinity's annual budget, the chief source being tuition. Endowment, however , is an essential resource which enables Trinity to maintain enduring programs of high quality without at the same time putting the costs of these programs beyond the reach of most students. " "The College's endowment of about $26 million is modest when compared to the endowments of the other colleges with which we compete for students and for faculty talent ," Dr. Lockwo od said . 'The new endowment we seek will put Trinity in a better competitive position with these institutions. " Recent figures show Wesleyan with $114 million endowment; Amherst with $75 million endowment; Oberlin with $69 million endowment ; Williams with $58 million endowment and Swarthmore with $52 million endowment. "Central to our academic effort is the Trinity College Library, ~hich in recent years has become too small for the number of books it contains and for the increased number of library users . After careful study, we have determined that the library building must be expanded, and are therefore including a $2 .5 million addition as part of this fund raising campaign, " Dr. Lockwood said. The present library building, constructed in 1952, was expanded in 1967 when a basement floor was converted to provide additional shelf and seating space. However, this was not adequate to meet the increased size of the collection and number of users. The planned addition, based on projections for the next 20 years, will create new shelf space for 200,000 volumes, will provide 250 additional seating spaces, and create additional work space for staff. "We recognize," Dr. Lockwood said, "that economic conditions are not favorable for launching a campaign of this magnitude. But, in a real sense, we have no choice . As our campaign motto points out, this must be 'an extraordinary effort' on the part of many people 'to sustain the values of a Trinity education .' Trinity's needs are intractable needs, and we must act now to meet them. We believe our goal is realistic in light of its importance to Trinity and, by implication, to the community at large." "During and after this capital campaign, we will be continuing to make our yearly appeals for unrestricted gifts to our Annual Giving Funds, which in recent years have raised $500,000 toward the annual budget," Dr. Lockwood added. Present at the announcement were trustees, members of the National Campaign Committee, faculty, stu(see CAMPAIGN, page 3)

Letter to the Editor Dr . Jerome P. Webster As a student at Holderness School from 1904 to 1908, and at Trinity thereafter, I knew Dr. Jerome P. Webster well and greatly appreciated the fine obituary notice given him in the December 1974 issue of The Trinity Reporter. Jerome (known as Jum and Jumbo in his prep-school days and as Dan in college) was one of Trinity's truly great alumni. That obituary should be supplemented, I believe, by some mention of the Dr. Jerome P. Webster Library of Plastic Surgery in the Columbia-Presbyterian Hospital in New York. I know little of its history, but I do know that it is a remarkable, extensive, and almost priceless, collection of the literature of plastic surgery. Some of the rare volumes in it date back as much as 400 years. That fact greatly surprised me, as I had no idea that this surgical specialty had its beginnings so far in the past. Jerome showed me some of these books and other prizes of the collection in the course of an afternoon's visit two or three years ago. He showed me also two of the many series of photographs which illustrate each step of his most notable plastic surgery operations; these, carefully filed and documented, occupied a considerable volume of filing space and , it seemed to me, should be immensely va luable to other plastic surgeons.

William R. Peelle, Jr.
Field Director For Campaign William R. Peelle, Jr. has been appointed Field Director for the Capital Campaign in the Development Office. A graduate of Episcopal rligh School, Alexandria, Virginia, he received a bachelor of arts degree from Trinity in 1970. Before returning to the College, he served as executive assistant to the secretary of the Illinois Department of Transportation.
dents, and administrators. Dr. George W. B. Starkey, chairman of the board, read a resolution voted by the trustees at a meeting just prior to the announcement ceremony, which stated in part: "For more than 150 years Trinity College has sought to combine sound scholarship with concern for the moral implications of all learning. Believing this purpose to be in the best interests of society, and believing that Trinity can best continue this purpose by remaining a small college of the highest quality, the Trustees of Trinity College today announce, and give their wholehearted support to, a fund raising campaign for $12,000,000 to sustain the values of a Trinity education." Chairman Blum pointed out that the campaign is now in process of soliciting "maror gifts," of $10,000 or more, and that a general solicitation of alumni and friends of the College would not begin until this fall or later. Publications describing the campaign were also distributed, including a 16-page brochure outlining the scope and purposes of the campaign. The campaign plans were prepared by a National Campaign Committee, headed by Blum, and including Henry

Tripod Editor' Adrien P. Mally, a 21-year-old junior majoring in urban studies, is the new editor-in-chief of The Trinity Tripod, student newspaper. She is the third woman to hold the post. She succeeds James W. Cobbs, Jr., a junior from Greenwich, Connecticut, who is now business manager of the publication. Editor of The Viking, the student newspaper at Atlantic City (New Jersey) High School before coming to the College, she joined The Tripod as a copy editor in her freshman year. While an exchange student at Dartmouth last year, she was an editor of the Daily Dartmouth. She was also a member of the Dartmouth Outing Club and the Environmental Studies Committee. Ms. Mally plans to change The Tripod's current four column_format to five columns, which she feels will create a more attractive layout and will better reflect the tone and content of the newspaper. She also plans changing headline styles.

National Campaign Editorial Support The announcement by President Lockwood which kicked off the $12 million national fund raising campaign for faculty and for academic programs, scholarships, the library and for improvement of the campus, has received considerable editorial support.
The Hartford Times
January 26, 1975
Help Trinity College Trinity College is involved in a national campaign to raise $12 million for expansion of its scholarship program, for general campus improvement and for expansion of its library. The campaign is worthy of widespread support from the Greater Hartford community. The college has already raised more than one-third of its goal, but collecting the balance will be no easy task in view of the state of the nation's economy, but it is the very state of the economy that has made the campaign necessary. Trinity President Theodore D . Lockwood finds that Trinity is no longer fully competitive in faculty salaries; scholarship funds are insufficient to help enough potential students from the diverse backgrounds that add much to the college; the library is overcrowded ; and rising costs of maintenance cut CV('r more deeply into the school's annual operating budget.

Trinity's Extraordinary Effort As Hartford's own Trinity" College publicly embarks on a national effort to raise $12 million for multi-purpose use, the thought occurs how confidently we could face the future if only money were needed to shape and assure it. Suddenly, we are reminded once again that money is now and evermore will be only the means to an end. It is important that Trinity reaches its monetary goal but it is infinitely more important that its purpose be attained.

$12,000,000 Bravery Trinity's brave armouncement that it is going out after $12,000,000 to "sustain Trinity values," has more than an educational message for these parlous times. The decision puts into action the truism that the time to do anything is when it should be done. Unooubtedly the Trinity brass pondered whether this "is the time to ask for contributions." Their answer "yes" is fulfillment of the Trinity leadership's responsibility to its students. The 151-year-old college on the hill in Hartford is conscious of its recognition of the nation's "great and continuing need for welleducated citizens who have also learned to apply their knowledge with integrity." Though Trinity claims this as a "distinctive purpose" of a Trinity education, such a questionably singular attribute does not have to be pursued literally. It is sufficient that the well~ucated citizens who make the decisions at Trinity are applying their knowledge with integrity to the intellectual welfare of faculty and student body. They are going to get them the money needed to enable a small college, rich in its profession of the humanities, to keep on giving full value in the developnent of the young men and women entrusted to it. The twin purposes of enlarging knowledge and sustaining ethical values cannot be advanced by short~hanging the next generation. This calls for increased scholarship help to those unable otherwise to go to Trinity, for strengtbening faculty salaries, for improving the library services and keeping up the campus environment. Many colleges are taking the view that some of these things can go mtdone because the ecooomy is currently tight. But everything is relative, and the deicision by Trinity to plough ahead, even when the soil ahead may be a little rocky, is sound policy-making. It is an attitude which hopefully is contagious.

to the magnetism of unselfishness, if not selflessness. It is to this end that Trinity and other colleges of its nature and tradition direct their resources and energies. That we have institutions so dedicated and that we have the means to insure their continued existence give us our best hope for the growth and spread of preciously endowed men and women in whom integrity and responsibility are among the chief endowments. The need for American and world citizens in whom basic human values and academic disciplines are inextricably combined cannot be overstated. Trinity itself describes its course of study thusly: to enable students to perceive the inherent value of knowledge and reason, free from ignorance and prejudice; to experience the joy of learning, and to discover the importance of ethical values in living their lives. Society cannot buy such recruits. It can only seek them from sources such as Trinity ; through thoughtfully rigorous training of young minds, the inculcation of values whose high worth is the worth of the individual, and the final development of character which can well mean the difference between a world of darkness and one of light. Such a goal and product are worth not only generous support but eager sacrifice.

Sorry that you who are still up and around were not at the game, Trinity-Amherst on November 9, not to mention, TrinityWesleyan on November 16 - two great days for those of us still undergraduates at heart (sometimes). Carol and I had a good visit with GEORGE FERRIS who appeared with various and assorted grandsons. I was pleased to receive a very interesting letter from Ms. Nancy T. Searle, assistant director of financial aid at Trinity, telling of some splendid results of our "Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarship Fund" for 74-75. I quote to you her last paragraph: "On behalf of the College, I would like to express our appreciation for the contribution which the Class of 1916 Memorial Scholarship makes to the financial aid program at Trinity. As you know, needy and deserving students would be unable to enroll at the College without such scholarship assistance." I hope you all read the latest Trinity College Bulletin catalog issue 74-75. Note under "Scholarship," page 212, CHARLES BYRON and Ila B. SPOFFORD bequests with preference for upperclass students with financial needs. This bequest is apparently in addition to his other very significant bequests for general purposes. Great man "Hoppie Spofford," how we miss him! What a great message we all just received from TED LOCKWOOD '48 about the alumni fund and annual giving for 1974-75. Don't forget about "matching gifts" from your companies or former companies. Some companies will match your gifts to Trinity even though you are retired. Try it.
